    I understand certified coders will need to take a proficiency testing for ICD-10-CM, but will that proficiency test have any questions pertaining to ICD-10-PCS?

    That's a good question. But you need to call AAPC to be for sure. I would think NOT because testing for CPC didn't include procedure codes in the ICD-9.

    Default Testing on PCS
    I have spoken with reps at the AAPC and recertification for AAPC coders is ONLY ICD-10-CM. No PCS. probably because the majority of us are outpatient coders and PCS is inpatient only. Online CEU's for ICD-10 can be found at www.ACodersReview.com. hope this helps.
